Don't panic.

"...there is absolutely no panic at Chelsea."

So, don't panic.  I know this concerns an unsigned contract extension for our biggest and brightest star who is now more than halfway through his original deal, but don't panic.  Eden Hazard will sign his name on the dotted line of a new Chelsea contract sooner or later.  (Hopefully sooner.)

Hazard (24) gave his word to the end of December Chelsea, the club stated that a large increase in his salary to more than 250,000 euros per week, compared. While many wonder where the official announcement of the new agreement continues, there is absolutely no panic at Chelsea. At Stamford Bridge sounds that both parties, a few details and signatures after from his.

Just a few minor details then.  Perhaps starting with the fact that the €250k weekly wage (£185k) represents a roughly 0% increase over his current compensation.  Maybe give him a raise?  Just a thought.  Better stand back, bold negotiating tactics are at work here!

Meanwhile, Belgium national team coach Marc Wilmots is apparently quite impressed with the improvements to the defensive side of Hazard's game, a development fully credited to Jose Mourinho.  Presumably then it's in everyone's best interest to get this new contract thing sorted sooner than soon.  Get on it!
